    Whip up one of these quick and cozy crochet baby blankets for the little ones this Christmas! Working with this chunky yarn makes it super fast, and you’ll want one for yourself once you notice how soft and warm it feels!

    The pattern is really easy once you get the hang of it, and I think the sweet shell stitch gives the blanket a little extra detail that I love. This is easy enough for beginners, so don’t shy away from this pattern if your new to crochet.

    I used 3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick…Wheat color. The hook size is J and the finished size is a 29″ square.

    Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

    • Start by making a chain of 81 stitches.
    • Row 1 – 1 single crochet in the second chain from the hook. 1 single crochet in each chain to the end.
    • Row 2 – Chain 1 {don’t count it as a stitch}, 1 single crochet in the first stitch, *skip 3 stitches, 5 double crochet in the next stitch to create a shell, skip 3 stitches, 1 single crochet in the next stitch…repeat from the * to the end of the row.

      I started to make this chunky crotchet baby blanket but I noticed that there is a note that you were checking the pattern. I do notice that the pattern does not look right. Is there any way I can get the corrected pattern? I would really appreciate any guidance you can give me. Thank you in advance for you help.

      Hello, if I wanted to make a bigger one for myself what would be the chain? Like in multiples of 3 plus 1? Thank you
